The second newsletter of the SIMRA project has been published! It provides information on SIMRA’s progress after one year of working on the project; on SIMRA’s first stakeholder workshop in Bratislava, Slovakia, in October 2016; and on SIMRA’s first results such as a social innovation definition, the launch of innovative actions and the social innovation examples database. You can read the newsletter here.
The Horizon 2020 project SIMRA (Social Innovation in Marginalised Rural Areas) officially started on April 1st, 2016 and will continue for four years. The project aims to categorise and understand social innovation in different settings (thanks to case studies), to develop an integrated set of methods for the evaluation of social innovation and its impact on rural areas, to analyse the success factors for social innovation and to disseminate new knowledge to policy-makers.
